ESPN is canceling all of it’s Washington D.C.-based television shows for the moment amidst coronavirus spread concerns, per Richard Deitsch.

Pardon the Interruption broadcasts from D.C. so unless it’s going to be shot in Los Angeles,  Bristol, Connecticut, or New York City, it’s probable that we will have to do without the long-time running show featuring Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser.

With all of the shows on FS1 being canceled this week, does that mean we now face a reality in which we have to watch Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman scream at each other the whole time about anything but sports?

Don’t sign me up.
